[ laughter ] >> the situation was there. >> jimmy: yeah, yeah. i love that dude. >> he's great. >> jimmy: he is phenomenal, do you hang out with the situation or any of those guys? >> never, never. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you said that almost
too fast. >> never, never. i would like to, but never, never. >> jimmy: no, no, no. i sat -- you know who i sat next to at the globes was leighton meester. >> oh okay, that's right. >> jimmy: you're co-star, she's super cute. love her. >> she is, she's beautiful. >> jimmy: in "country strong," she was great. who else do you have -- blake was in "the town." amazing. >> she was in "the town," yes. >> jimmy: penn was in "easy a." >> good movie. >> >> jimmy: yep. and you did twelve -- you hung out with 50 cent. >> i did, yeah. my boy. >> jimmy: then you did a movie with jane fonda. >> yes, that's right. that's right, i did. >> jimmy: a legend. >> she is a legend. she's fantastic. she's wonderful. >> jimmy: that's so cool, do you feel like -- >> force of nature. >> jimmy: do you feel -- she is a force of nature. she looked great at the globes too. >> yes. >> jimmy: do you feel like, you miss them when you see them on the screen? you're like, hey, that's my buddy? >> what are you guys doing? >> jimmy: you're leaving the team man. >> i feel like we grew up together. i feel like we went to elementary school, and high school, and college. back to high school, then graduate school. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: just kind of floating around -- we're all good friends and everything but like, you know, it's tough, jimmy -- when i'm starting to go after the same roles as like blake and layton and i'm like, "oh, you know i'm gonna play this cool boston street tough hooker in "the town" and i got this audition." and next thing i know there's a knife in my back and blake's playing it.
[ laughter ] >> jimmy: you should start going after more male roles. [ laughter ] >> i should. >> jimmy: i mean that's -- >> i couldn't play the beauty pageant country singer in "country strong." >> jimmy: you probably could. >> it's hard to like them as people when they do something like that. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: unbelievable. their soul -- soul crushers. >> it's tough. i love them. >> jimmy: i know, you're buddies. i was going to ask if you ever get star struck -- because there is a funny story about you meeting a basketball player. that's pretty awesome. >> i do get star struck occasionally but for me it's athletes, for the most part. i was in oklahoma city with my family over the holidays. hey, i like that. [ laughter ] and so i happened -- i was at the mall happening to be on christmas eve, you know, getting ahead of the christmas shopping before everyone got in there. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: on christmas eve you were ahead of the game. >> a couple of hours before. >> jimmy: that's true.
>> so i'm in the apple store with both of my uncles -- uncle jay and he's like, "hey, look who it is." i turn around, it's kevin durant. he plays for oklahoma city thunder. i had just gotten my ball cap situated and everything in there. and i'm like, "i don't know what to do, i just went through this whole 14-year- old girl process," probably similar to what they go through -- i don't know. i'm like, "i need a picture. i really need a picture." and so -- uncle jay goes over there and he's like, "hey, i got my" -- >> jimmy: you had uncle jay go over there? >> uncle jay go. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: what a wimp. i can't believe you didn't get that hooker role in "the town." you could have done that. you should have got that. >> i should have got that role. so he goes over there -- >> jimmy: you send poor uncle jay over. >> i sent poor uncle jay over, and he's of course like, "my nephew, he is on this little show called 'gossip girl,' he likes you a lot, can he get a picture?" and he's like, "oh, yeah, yeah, i know 'gossip girl.'" [ laughter ] so i come over and i snap the photo with him. it was a great photo.
>> jimmy: are you 2'9"? [ laughter ] >> my feet are cut off. i'm 6 foot -- look at my face though, i'm so excited. >> jimmy: you're so happy. >> i'm like, "hey, i like basketball players." >> jimmy: that's awesome dude. it's cool you still get excited about that stuff. we love having you here. congrats on "gossip girl's" new season.

we were the first to ban smoking on airplanes. the first to have smoke-free bars and restaurants. all while saving over $86 billion in health care costs... and over a million lives. we've done a good job. but even if you were born today, you'd still grow up in a world where tobacco kills more people... than aids, drugs, alcohol, murder and car crashes... combined. we have a lot more work to do.
